Over the past few years summers have been a little more quiet. The days of summer vacations seem to have been bypassed for off-season travelling (it’s cheaper!) So during the summer, we would find ourselves opting for more casual, laid back, and affordable ways to have fun – whether it was a game of mini golf or a backyard BBQ. The warmer weather is a perfect time to head out to a park friends and family over for an backyard part.
It’s been hot out here – very hot. The kind of hot where you feel like you might burn your feet if you walk on cement barefoot. What better way to cool off while celebrating the heat than with a Tropical Splash Summer Celebration. This would be a great way for us to get together and beat the heat with some yummy treats.
With a tropical theme in mind, I head out to the local Walmart in search of the new TCBY Tropical Peach Mango Frozen Yogurt. I grew up eating TCBY “froyo” and was excited to learn that the local Walmart carried TCBY Frozen Yogurst in the freezer section. I made a list, checked it twice then head out in search of this tropical treat (check out my shopping photo album!)
When I arrived, I made my way through the aisles, picking up more items than were actually on my list (which, I’ve come to accept, is an inevitable result.) Finally I made it to the freezer section and found the TCBY Frozen Yogurt. Strawberry. Mint Chocolate Chunk. English Toffee Crunch. But no Tropical Peach Mango. Either this Walmart didn’t carry them or they used to carry them but were sold out by the time I got there. Un-phased, I picked up the next closest flavor to tropical – Strawberry.
When we got back, we set-up our Tropical Celebration.
I used Margarita glasses (you can also use plastic ones) to serve the frozen yogurt, then dolloped on some whip cream and topped it with Smarties. Tropical Smarties would’ve been a great topping, but sadly they were no where to be found.
You can also use pineapple, bananas, or fresh strawberries as a topping. I tried to find those cute paper umbrellas but those were a no go. I’m going to have to stock up next time I see them.
This was the first time I got to enjoy TCBY Frozen Yogurt out of the store and it did not disappoint. It was perfectly smooth with just the right amount of sweetness. I LOVE the strawberry syrup swirls that are mixed throughout the frozen yogurt and the flavor is spot on. You can add toppings if you want, but it taste delicious as it is.
Our Tropical Splash Celebration turned out to be more tropical in spirit than in…frozen yogurt, but we still had a lot of fun. The TCBY Frozen Yogurt was delicious and was the perfect way to help beat the heat!
